About Mendelssohn Symphony No. 3 Hebrides Overture

The marvelous Swiss conductor Peter Maag leads the London Symphony Orchestra performing Mendelssohn's "Scotch" or "Scottish" Symphony, recorded in 1960. A gloriously warmhearted and energetic performance, Maag's interpretation has set the recorded standard for this work The recording captures wonderful chemistry between Peter Maag and the London Symphony Orchestra. It's Mendelssohn performance at its best, which is saying a lot!

The results are a dazzling example of what vinyl still has to offer, if prepared with care that mass-produced records do not receive. The sound defines vividness, with an undistorted dynamic range and pin-point accuracy of the orchestral instruments’ locations. Long considered one of the best recordings.Turned out by London (actually British Decca), this pair of 45rpm discs was an ear opener. Exciting and involving, ORG has produced a must-have for anyone who possesses audiophile level equipment." - Zan Furtwangler, 4 Stars!!,, January 2012

"Peter Maag conducts a delightfully fresh "Scottish" Symphony, keeping tempos moderately brisk, textures lean, and phrasing intuitive - that is, everything flows easily and logically. ...Decca's 1960 recording of the symphony is full and clear with plenty of depth" - Victor Carr
